Cotherstone Footbridge


The footbridge over the River Tees just north of Cortherstone, County Durham, was built in 1932 by Joseph L Thompson and Sons Ltd of Sunderland. It replaced two earlier bridges; a timber bridge which was replaced following flood damage in 1881, and a suspension bridge whose cable snapped in 1929 with 40 people on the bridge, killing one.[1]
